Executing a flawless race to finally claim a Bathurst 1000 crown was no fluke for Shane van Gisbergen.The Kiwi has long been knocking on the door of a first Bathurst triumph, that career goal now ticked after he fended off Cam Waters at Mount Panorama yesterday.It took a flawless drive, too, thanks to a relentless challenge from Waters and two tense restarts in the last 10 laps.In the latest Motorsport.com podcast, host Andrew van Leeuwen and Supercars.com digital editor Stefan Bartholomaeus chart van Gisbergen's progress from a fast and furious wild child to one of the safest pairs of hands in the category.They also rate Waters' chances of being a genuine title contender next season, ponder if we'll see Scott McLaughlin back in a Supercar, and dissect all the latest news including Gen3 and important calendar changes.
Was the FIA really too harsh on Lewis Hamilton in its handling of the practice starts saga in Sochi? Or was it perhaps too lenient in its penalty points backflip? Hamilton's pair of in-race five-second penalties were the key talking point in Sochi, the saga continuing after the race as the two penalty points that would have left him perilously close to a race ban were rescinded.In the latest episode of the Motorsport.com Podcast, Oleg Karpov and Oriol Puigdemont join host Andrew van Leeuwen to debate all sides of the matter, including whether the FIA actually went too easy on Hamilton with the points backflip.There's also some creative suggestions for fixing Sochi's dramatic Turn 2 'long-cut', as well as some insight into why MotoGP couldn't afford to have lost Valentino Rossi just yet.
